The problem isn’t “defense”, it is CONTRACTING!! Whether drafted in the Pentagon, or “security establishment”, or elsewhere in “social services”, “healthcare”, etc, etc. The PRIVATIZATION of government AND WAR, is tearing our economy, and many others, apart. Ike was really warning about that “Industrial” side of the complex, quite rightfully. Reaganomics wasn’t just about an unsustainable “tax” model, but a sale of America, to those same “persons” SCOTUS gave a “right” to abuse us, “real people”.
